3/10 The bland plays on.
You know rice-cakes? They're cheap, they're mostly harmless, but they're no fun. After a while you just can't face any more. If rice-cakes were games, they'd be like this. It works, it's not outstandingly terrible, but neither is it good. It's a retro-looking RPG breakout game, but not enough RPG and not enough new features to the breakout. It's just like spitball sparky with a "mission hub" added. In short, there are a lot better ways to spend your time and money than this.

I can recommend this to you if you're a huge breakout fan. If you're not, you're going to be bored soon.
The game looks amazing, I really love the pixel art. But that's the only good thing I could find about it. Unfortunately, it raised some kind of expectations in me, it led me to think that there would be more to discover. So I played way too long to find out, it's just breakout.

I really, really tried to like this game. I love the graphical style and I enjoy 'Breakout' type of games; I was hoping that this would be an evolution of them. It's not. It's slow and monotonous.

You begin in a broken town. In order to rebuild you must go into the dungeons, earn money, and donate it to the townspeople. The dungeons are different environments such as a forest, castle and mine; all are presented beautifully in an elegant SNES anime style. The style is so pretty in fact that it was the main draw for me to buy the game.

The gameplay is close to the classic Arkanoid/Breakout games. You have a paddle at the bottom of the screen that keeps a ball bouncing around on the 'table'; there are bricks on the table you must break which hold gold and various powerups that help you, or conditions that weaken your paddle. Once you break all the bricks with the ball: you win the level. If you let the ball fall out of the bottom you lose a life, once all lives are gone you restart the world unless you buy a continue with the gold you're using to rebuild the town, or buy items. There are also stores in some of the levels, bonus areas to get extra lives and items, and spells that help you speed up the process of breaking the blocks.

The problem with the game is that it doesn't deviate from the Breakout formula enough; so if you've ever played one of them then you've played a very close version of this game, and it has the similar problems.

Once you've broken most of the bricks in a level, the ball tends to just bounce around missing the bricks that it's been missing since the beginning of the level, especially the bricks in the corners. This is supposed to be solved with your spells which allow you to change the angle of the ball mid-movement, a fireball spell that lets you shoot up from your paddle, and a few spells that allow you to set the ball where you want. They work for the first dungeon and that's about it. In later levels there are unbreakable blocks, blocks that take many hits to destroy, and barriers that slow your progression through levels to an eye-gouging crawl.

It's just boring. If you've scrolled to the bottom of this review for a score, it's boring/out of 10.
I wish I could tell you that the graphics are enough to purchase the game, but it's just a bore.

Please don't waste your money or time.

This game is very hard to love. It is one where the distinction between recommending it and saying it isn't worth it is hard. The visuals are very nice, considering they are done by paul robertson, this is a given. The gameplay itself is where the issues fall. You have magic powers, such as the ability to teleport the ball or control where it floats. While these powers are nice, the game is incredibly difficult. Blocks which need to be broken are almost always behind unbreakable objects and the further you venture into the game, the more often this occurs. If you enjoy a challenge and like brick breaking games, go for it if this game is on a good sale. I enjoyed the challenge of the game so I give it my approval, but this game is definately not for everyone.
